Washington, Sat, 31 Mar 2012 ANI

Washington, Mar 25 (ANI): US President Barack Obama has reportedly visited the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) separating North and South Korea, amid increasing tensions over Pyongyang's planned long-range rocket launch next month.

Obama went to an observation post on the volatile border, and met US troops.

He told US troops serving there that they were protecting "freedom's frontier," The BBC reports.

It was Obama's first visit to the DMZ, which has bisected the peninsula since the end of the Korean War in 1953.

On Monday, Obama will attend a security summit in Seoul.he conference will be attended by leaders from more than 50 nations.

According to the report, its main focus will be preventing criminal or militant groups from acquiring nuclear weapons.

The US has voiced concern that North Korea's rocket launch due in April is a pretext for a missile test.

Pyongyang has said that the rocket, which would take a new southern trajectory instead of a previous route east over Japan, would mark the 100th birthday of its late Great Leader Kim Il-sung. (ANI)
